Wright Brothers Build Powered Flying Machine __ "Wilbur and Orville Wright first became interested in flying machines when they were 11 and 7 years old, in 1878. “Our father came into the house one evening with some object partly concealed in his hands,” they later remembered, “and before we could see what it was, he tossed it into the air. Instead of falling to the floor, as we expected, it flew across the room till it struck the ceiling, where it fluttered awhile, and finally sank to the floor. It was a little toy.... a light frame of cork and bamboo, covered with paper [and driven] by rubber bands under torsion. A toy so delicate lasted only a short time in the hands of small boys, but its memory was abiding.” It is amazing just what that memory led to. You will find first hand accounts from the Wright brothers as well as other historic material. - From -
